...my money. my choice. my meineke. >>> marco rubio made headlines for his republican response to the president last night but not necessarily for the reasons he may want. a social media frenzy started with the senator made an awkward pause. there it is right there. to take a sip of water. kate bolduan traveled to get the backstory on this rising star. >> reporter: the 41-year-old senator, already labeled the republican saviour, was blunt in his official gop response to the president's state of the union address. >> his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more, and spend more. >> reporter: his big moment, however, overshadowed by an unscripted drink of water now deemed watergate. rubio took the moment now gone viral in stride. >> i needed water. it's a funny way of reminding us that we are human. >> reporter: that charm is one reason behind his rapid rise in the republican party. to better understand his star power, we went to his roots, west miami, be florida. his success may seem improbable. >> my dad was a bartender. my no, ma'am
the republican response from senator marco rubio of florida, we're going to hear him talk in optimistic terms and not just bash the president, but talk about what the middle -- about what washington can do for the middle class. we're going hear a little bit about the marco rubio family story we've heard. his roots in cuba. he is going to talk about his family as an example of american exceptionalism, and he is going to broaden it and talk about republican ideas. i think he doesn't want to be hit with the idea that this is a rubio response. not the republican response. andrew, something else the republicans are doing for the first time. earlier tonight around 6:00 or 7:00 marco rubio is going to tape his response in spanish so that spanish language stations can play his response immediately after the president and not wait in that little intermission there usually is. that's a way to get a little bit of a leg up. >> rubio is working very closely. i mean, it's two steps forward, one step back i'm told, but rubio has been working very closely with this bipartisan group of senators to try to work
the immigration 8. marco rubio warned if proposed, the president's bill would be dead an arrival in congress. and arizona senator, john mccain, who suggested the white house has a greater strategy at play. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. does the president really want a result or does he want anoth another -- to beat up republicans? >> the president's new chief of staff is defending this back-up plan saying the administration is only doing what it promised to do from the very beginning. >> we're doing exactly what the president said we would do last month in las vegas, which is we're preparing, we're going to be ready. let's make sure it doesn't have to be proposed. let's make sure that that group up there, the gang of eight, makes a good progress on these efforts, as much as they say they want to. >> all right. so if the leak proves anything, this president and the white house is working on an immigration reform plan. joining me is texas democratic congressman henry quayar. some saying the legislation is half-backed and seriously flawed and would make our immigration proble
rubio would have said, you want to know what the state of the union is? let me tell you what the state of the union is. average income of americans has dropped 5%. not since barack obama became president of the united states, but since the recession ended. our economy's in transition. more americans are being left behind. senior citizens aren't going to be assured of these entitlement programs for long. we're $6 trillion deeper in debt today than we were when barack obama became president. barack obama's allowed the national debt to go up by 60% himself since he was president. 4 million more americans are out of work today than were working when barack obama became president. we've got the weakest recovery in over 70 years with barack obama as president of the united states. it is time to think big. it is time to go long. it is time to come together. why couldn't anybody in washington say that last night? >> and there was a lack of urgency to it. there was a sense that -- it was a little bit -- so much depends on what the baseline is. and the president was almost saying things are impr
in to the duelling responses in my rant later. right now focusing on rubio. he's such a gifted communicator. he really is. that's not spin. that's not veneer. >> i agree with this. >> i'm hoping tonight that he puts on a positive message. let's be honest. this is not a response to the state of the union. this is already been written. it is basically designed to present an alternative view. i love that. so i actually -- one of my new rules for the gop is to stop describing messages in terms of obama. so i hope that it's less anti-obama and more positive, optimistic, i expect him to put in a lot of personal stories about success and growing up as an immigrant and i'm really hoping for that young revitalizing optimistic message of what conservatism can do and bring for opportunity. >> optimistic message from the republicans, that would be new. i think about -- >> it wouldn't be new. it's new of a last few years. >> you're describing the rnc speech and had that potential to launch a career in recent years. this rebuttal, generally, only has the possibility to sink a career and the odds for rubio ji
and this reflects that. >> we shouldn't be surprised people like marco rubio coming out against it. if actually proceed poed the president's bill will be dead on arrival in congress leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. i mean. sure, republicans will shoot down anything that came from the white house anyway, is that all part of this? >> it absolutely is. in a way, whether or not the white house meant to leak this or not, they wanted this out there and in a way it gets republicans a lot of cover. they can shoot down the force for ray and that gives them a lot of room to work with congress and come up with their own deal without looking like they're cooperating with the president f he has his eyes on 2016, he does not want to look like he was hand-in-hand with the president on this very important legislative issue >> one of the senators that is working part of this bipartisan group is senator chuck schumer. let me play what he had to say. >> we talked to senator rubio and he is fully on board with our process and i am very hopeful that in march
-field advantage and he ends up looking like kenneth the page. >> i don't think rubio will look like that or sound like that. i think he will obviously, it will be a play on immigration. it will be hopefully an economic response to the president. to your point, joe, the president has said, we've got to do something about entitlements. the question is what? what are you willing to put on the table? is he going to lay out a specific or some direction towards a specific policy. that's what republicans will look for. more importantly to your question, they have an opportunity to frame this economic argument. you still have 21 million americans unemployed. the rate is still up. you can frame that argument and say to the president, take the laundry list you laid out tonight, give us the bill and we will wait for it in the house and embrace it and work with you and the senate democrats if that's what you want. give us the bill. >> i think the whole speech is going to be in spanish so we won't know what he says. >> i can go to sleep much much earlier and wait for the translation. >> talk about a no win si

"newsro" >>> good morning, thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. we begin in southern california where an accused killer ex-cop is believed dead, his reign of terror over. police say it will take days to confirm that a body found inside this cabin is actually christopher dorner, the former los angeles cop who had vowed deadly vengeance for his firing. this is video from outside the cabin from cbs. he was spotted yesterday near big bear lake. he crashed a stolen car and then carjacked another vehicle from a camp ranger who happened to be on the scene. >> he came up to me with his gun pointed at me and i stopped my truck, put it in p
. senator rubio and others who say that the proposals on the table wouldn't have changed what happened in newtown are wrong. they are absolutely wrong. if that young man didn't have 30 round ammunition magazines, there would be little boys and girls alive. i'm not the only one that believes that. the families of the kids believe that as well. the fact is that these have become weapons o of mass destruction. they give a false sense of courage to these mass murders who might not walk into these schools and religious institutions and movie theaters if they didn't have the fault weapon in the first place. and without those clips if they walk in, they wouldn't do as much damage. these people who say that these changes and laws wouldn't have made a difference in newtown, they don't know the facts. >> do dwrou think something big and bold can be done or something small like universal background checks? >> i think it's okay to move incrementally. if we started with background checks and moved to other more serious issues like bans on high-capacity magazines, that's okay too. there's a moment i
to the panel here. i want to play what marco rubio had to say in the gop response prior to the water drink. prior or after. i don't know if anything matters. you take that sip of water and what he said about his personal story. >> this ideal is personal. my parents emigrated for the opportunity to improve their life. they made it to the middle class. my dad as a bartender and my mother as a cashier and maid. i didn't inherit money from them. i live in the same middle class neighborhood i grew up in. i owed over $100,000. a debt i paid off just a few months ago. >> his story is not that mitt romney could tell or touch. chris matthews said rubio said government is not the answer, but talked about medicare for his mother and a student loan he received that perhaps allow him to be the senator that he is today. what do you make of the conflict there? >> i think that senator rubioey performance is fine. i am not hung up on the water incident. >> the issue of the role of government. >> substantively the short coming to answer the question is he didn't do anything in that speech to expand the tent
. >>> the second sidebar story of tomorrow night will be the spot light for a republican rising star marco rubio. he gives the response to the president. is he the long-term answer the gop has been waiting for? let's bring back our gaggle. susan, you know, these responses say they're fraught with peril, but to me there was a no more often choice. it could have been weird had they gone any other direction. >> so is he the barack obama of the republican party? he's young, he helps address that are diversity problem, which is a really serious one. he's acceptable to the tea party folks, he talks in a way that is not scary or doesn't off-put people who are in the middle. so he is a guy with some enormous promise. >> but this is style versus substance? right now the republican party's answers to its problems are we're going to change the face, change some of our phraseology, but we're not changing substance yet? >> we're going to wait. >> one more election before we start changing. >> i think for rubio, he'll be able to deliver a good speech. he's been able to prove that time and again like at the rn

a splinter within the republican party, have you marco rubio giving the official response and rand paul giving a tea party response. >> i think it's an american response. bottom line is this, americans are tired of speeches about jobs, they want jobs. look them in the eye and say are you worried about your job and the jobs of your children and neighbors? and they say yes? >> you have rand paul and then have you marco rubeiio. >> the line in the sand to avoid the is he quester is revenue. is more revenue required? or out of the question? as in any package to avoid the sequester? will republicans accept any alternatives to avoid the sequester that does not include more revenue? >> i'll answer first. we know these cuts with the sequester would be very deep, both on the social program side and on the military side. the fact that north korea had this launch, obviously is a very unsettling thing for our country right now. i think the american people want to see a balanced approach and i think the president is pushing it. >> balanced approach meaning revenue? >> absolutely. >> can they accept

of other obama proposals. >> excuse me for a minute. watergate 2.0, guys. senator marco rubio, he provided the republican response, sorry to say, marco rubio this is the one thing, guilty as charged, people are talking about today. >> oh, my gosh. >> nothing frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. >> so here he goes, live on tv. bottoms up. wets the whistle. what is he thinking? >> unfortunately didn't have a cnn mug. >> didn't have a cnn mug. we should have provided it for him. patricia murphy, let me begin with you. here he is, rising republican, it is just kind of silly. >> it is. it is and it isn't. i think somebody who is more seasoned and is used to delivering major speeches at major times would not have gone for the water. i think really rubio is such a bright shining light for the republican party, but it just feels a little too soon, and last night it looked way too soon. that was just such an amateur mistake and i think it really stepped all over his message, which would have been good if it wasn't marred by his performance there. >> amy
. you see a guy like marco rubio, who's a simile, has great potential as a hispanic republican senator, going a different direction. rubio still has to care about the tea party, but he's also trying to make his way into a different place. i think they're all jockeying for a place on the national stage. >> so you think he's trying to go hard right? >> well, whether it's 2014 or 2020, you're staking out ground. all these guys are not just your average freshman senator. if your a freshman senator guy like that with a harvard pedigree from one of the biggest states in the country and you're hispanic, you're going to get more attention than most other freshman senators ever do, so you have an opportunity. >> too bad he wasted it. >> by the way, if he's thinking 2016, he wants to make sure, willie, that nobody in the 2016 or 2020 primary is -- and i know people are shocked that we're talking about it, but that's what he must be thinking. it's the only way to explain why a guy would change personality this radically. i guess he's afraid to be attacked as being a harvard guy. so he's -- anyway
't worked in europe. why does marco rubio think it would work in america? >> look, what you have to keep in mind is when marco rubio said that. he said that in his response to the president's state of the union right before rand paul was about to give the tea party response to the state of the union. what marco is trying to do here is politically position himself as almost a unifier of the tea party and mainstream conservative fiscal conservatives in the republican party. so, look, the balanced budget amendment is red meat to the tea party. they believe in it because they want fiscal responsibility. i think that was a political and tactical play on his part more than a reasonable or achievable fiscal possibility. >> john? >> bumper sticker politics. it's not serious. it doesn't reflect the realities of government, but it's a popular and powerful contrast the with the democrats because many states have balanced budget amendments and operate just fine. federal government is more complex but the more reason for president obama to set a clear contrast. if the republicans want to focus slowly
